Nuts you are. For rear seat head gear, you can modify to put in head bumpers if needed.


Please enlighten me as to how you are going to modify the back seat of a T100 and install head rests/bumpers in a manner that would provide a comfy and safe ride?

I don't see how that is possible without having the rear seat rider's head tilted forward.

Got any pics of such a mod?

I have two kids that ride in the T100 with me all the time.

Never did it on a Toy back seat but did on a Chev 4 door Series 25. At that time, JC WHitney had clamp ons that worked, but the clearance to the back of the cab was not an issue. Alternative is to mount a pad across the window top to bottom. If you have access to high density foam and someone to do the stitching, it might work. Don't need a lot of thickness, just something to keep your head from whacking the glass. I know all about that. I have had the luxury of sitting in the back of my buddy's 4Runner and fully appreciate hard bench seats and no head support.

Anyway, that's a suggestion. A good T100 versus a 30K + set of wheels makes me look for simple alternatives.

Just for clarification - I have nothing but praise for my T-100. Never let me down and the maintenance was pretty straight forward. It had NO rust, just a couple of nicks in the paint above the windshield from small flying rocks.

The interior was immaculate. It will be interesting how the dealer prices it - but I have a hunch it will never see the used car lot.

By far the best truck I ever owned.

I hope everyone enjoys their T as much as I have.

I considered the Doublecab Tacoma but it would not fit in my garage. That was part of my rationale for the Ridgeline.

Out of curiosity, do any of the new trucks offer the option of manual hubs? Nissan? Toyota? Or have auto-style hubs completely taken over the market?

Will the older Aisins fit any of the newer Toy trucks?

I wonder if the Ridgeline offers a similar 4wd system to the Toyota ADD system. Wonder if there's any sort of manual hub conversion available for it?

I appreciate the suggestion. I just don't see a practical way to implement it from both a safety and comfort perspective. Any pad across the back will also eliminate the use of the sliding rear center glass too. Also, a hard enough hit in the back may not stop the rear seat rider's head from breaking the glass. Sometimes I carry 2 riders in the back seat.

Honestly, I just don't see it as being a safe ride back there and wish I had a better alternative than selling my T. (although that's not in the immediate future from a financial perspective).

The dealer just posted the truck on their website. They want $9,900. Fair price - if anyone wants it just expect to put about a $1000 worth of repairs into it. That is about it. So negotiate from there.

Also, I sold the repair manual and the aisin hubs.
